OOPS I did it again...

Tuesday, October 06, 2009

Over the past week I have noticed that my strength training has gotten easier and so has my bike riding. Today I upped my strength training to 3 sets from 2 sets of ten.
I have been doing 45 minutes a day on my stationary bike for a couple of weeks but not daily like I need to. Last week, I really wanted to make my weekly cardio minutes goal, but I missed a day. What did I do? Well, I changed to doing cardio twice a day for 30 minutes each time. I was short 15 minutes on the week, because I totally forgot about it, not because I couldn't do it.
Years ago I rode my stationary bike for three months daily and was up to well over an hour at a time. I would listen to Enya's Paint the Sky With Stars album and just peddle to the music. I did it when I got home from work at 2:30 in the morning. I found it nice and relaxing and it helped my legs have less pain. At work, I was on my feet a lot and on concrete flooring.
Well this evening I put on that album and started peddling. I made the full hour!! I am feeling great about this!! Woohoo, one more notch in my belt as to my abilities! emoticon
There is one slight problem. I do not peddle as fast as I do listening to other music. I try to keep in time to the beat of any music I listen to while peddling.

    Sometimes we just need the right tools to help us reach the goals we have. So glad you were able to figure it out and now you can repeat it as many times as you want.
    Hope you have a great Wednesday!!
